, as the current president pointed to mr. bush's unsuccessful push for immigration reform. >> seven years ago president bush restarted an important conversation by speaking with the american people about our history as a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants. and even though comprehensive immigration reform has taken a little longer than any of us expected, i am hopeful that this year, with the help of speaker boehner and some of the senators and members of congress who are here today, that we bring it home. and if we do that it will be in large part thanks to the hard work of president george w. bush. >> there is a large people when i wouldn't have been found in a library. >> the polit wag kinds blow left and right, polls right and fall, supporters come and go. but in the end, leaders are defined by the convictions they hold. and my deepest conviction, the guiding principles of the administration is that the united states of america must strife to expand the reach of freedom. as president i tried to act on these principleses every day. it wasn't always easy and it certainly wasn't always

blamed former president bush for the financial crisis and the recession. do you think that mr. bush deserves blame for the financial crisis? >> well, i don't think he does deserve the blame. i think the events that happened in the period 2005, '6, '7, that led up to the crisis and certainly those in 2007 and '8 were unprecedented. they weren't expected by markets, they western expected by my colleagues in the community. they western expected by financial analysts. if you look at the policies of the bush administration, you know, things are often blamed, things like deregulation. you know, there is not a whole lot of deregulation you can point to that would have been responsible for this i think most people, most serious academics who look at it, most scholars who look at it now attribute to primarily having to do with the flood in the united states that depressed the credit spreads and as a result resulted in much higher devils. >> those housing regulationles. all right. let me ask another question. many conservatives have criticized former president bush because he spenty too much.
